John Cook and Marco Dawson shared the first-round lead at 7-under 65 on Friday in the Champions Tour's AT&T Championship, the final full-field event of the season.

Scott Dunlap was a stroke back at TPC San Antonio, and Jay Haas was at 67 along with Guy Boros, Bart Bryant, Gary Hallberg, Tom Lehman, Peter Senior, Wes Short Jr., and Kirk Triplett. Haas won the Greater Hickory Kia Classic last week at 60 to become the 18th player to win a Champions Tour event at 60 or older.

Cook won the event in 2007 and 2008 at Oak Hills. The winner last month at Pebble Beach for his 10th Champions Tour title, he hit a 3-wood approach to a foot to set up an eagle on the par-5 second hole.

The top 30 on the money list after the tournament will advance to the season-ending Charles Schwab Cup Championship next week in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Bernard Langer, the Charles Schwab Cup points leader, opened with a 71. Langer has a tour-high five victories — two of them majors — and also leads the money list. Colin Montgomerie, second in the Schwab Cup standings, shot 68.

Defending champion and Lone Oak alum Kenny Perry also had a 68.

Russell Henley tied his personal best on the PGA Tour with a 7-under 63 on Friday to take the lead in the McGladrey Classic.

Starting with a horrible drive that he turned into a birdie, Henley ran off six birdies over his last 10 holes and leads Brendon de Jonge by one shot among the early starters in the second round at Sea Island Golf Club.

Henley hasn't played since the Tour Championship. That didn't affect his putting, and Henley already has a reputation as one of the top players on the greens. He one-putted 10 greens on the Seaside course.

Henley was at 9-under 131.

Defending champion Chris Kirk atoned for a double bogey on this opening hole for a 67. He was four shots behind. Former Murray State golfer Patrick Newsome shot a 71 on Friday but missed the cut with a two-day total of 146.

Jeremy Guthrie pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning, Lorenzo Cain drove in an early run off Tim Hudson and made a pair of nifty catches, and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 Friday night to take a 2-1 World Series lead.

Cain's RBI groundout three batters in put the Royals ahead, and Kansas City expanded its lead to 3-0 in the sixth when Alex Gordon hit an RBI double off Hudson and scored on Eric Hosmer's single off left-hander Javier Lopez.

San Francisco finally got to Guthrie in the bottom of the sixth when pinch-hitter Michael Morse hit an RBI double over third base just past the glove of a diving Mike Moustakas and scored on Buster Posey's groundout against Kelvin Herrera.

Herrera, Brandon Finnegan, Wade Davis and Greg Holland combined for four innings of hitless relief, the longest in a Series game in 22 years.

Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright has undergone what the team describes as minor elbow surgery that should not set him back for next season.

The Cardinals say Friday's operation was an arthroscopic procedure to trim a small piece of cartilage from the right elbow. The 33-year-old Wainwright is expected to begin physical therapy in two weeks and resume his offseason throwing program in eight weeks.

General manager John Mozeliak and manager Mike Matheny made no mention of the injury at a news conference to review the season earlier this week.

Wainwright went 20-9 with a career-low 2.38 ERA in 32 starts this season.

The team says an initial MRI came back negative, but Wainwright requested additional tests and the findings of a second MRI resulted in the decision to operate.

Here are Friday night's high school football scores involving local teams.
